Part designs can be received in a variety of 3D formats:

  • Siemens NX (.prt)
  • SolidWorks (.sldprt/.slddrw)
  • Parasolid (.x_t)
  • Step 203/214 (.stp/.step)
  • IGES (.igs/.iges.)

Siemens NX software is the integrated CAD/CAM system at Matrix.  Molds are designed in 3D solids and the master model is the reference against which all physical results are compared.  The data is available at every stage of mold manufacturing, sampling, production and inspection from work stations throughout the facility.
